A Walk on the Wild Side by Nelson AlgrenWith its depiction of the downtrodden prostitutes, bootleggers, and hustlers of Perdido Street in the old French Quarter of 1930s New Orleans, A Walk on the Wild Side found a place in the imagination of all the generations that have followed since. As Algren admitted, it wasnt written until long after it had been walked... I found my way to the streets on the other side of the Southern Pacific station, where the big jukes were singing something called Walking the Wild Side of Life. Ive stayed pretty much on that side of the curb ever since.
Perhaps his own words describe the book best: The book asks why lost people sometimes develop into greater human beings than those who have never been lost in their whole lives. Why men who have suffered at the hands of other men are the natural believers in humanity, while those whose part has been simply to acquire, to take all and give nothing, are the most contemptuous of mankind.

Joseph Mitchell’s walking blues
We have to gamble on the invisible and risk all that we see and taste and feel. But we know the risk is worth it, because there is nothing more insecure than this transient world. It placed him squarely in the middle of the greatest story ever told. The greatest story ever told begins with a real moral dilemma: Mary was officially betrothed to Joseph and they had maintained a chaste relationship when she was found pregnant. This, of course, created a very personal dilemma for Joseph since he knew he was not the father of the baby. When we are under pressure, who we really are comes out and this was certainly true for Joseph.

It was just me and him all day long for eight days straight, and he said 'by the end of these eight days you'll be able to walk on the wire by yourself,' and I thought that sounded ambitious, but he's such a positive thinker. By the end of those eight days I did walk on a wire by myself. Philippe Petit. Gordon-Levitt noted that many people on the film told him not to worry that much about doing the high-wire walks himself because it would all be done by "movie magic.

Ostheimer figures are made entirely by hand in Germany. The high quality of environmentally-friendly Ostheimer wooden toys is based on the use of certified materials. The warm, natural material of wood comes from sustainable domestic forestry and certified organic wood, and the selected childsafe colors and organic oils preserve the natural characteristics of the wood and make it tangible for the child. Many senses are thus involved: the grains of the surface of the wood, the smell of high-quality oils, the beautiful sight for the eye. Artistic and practical designing and painting have a focus so that the characteristic peculiarities of an animal's very typical appearance, in short its spirit, are expressed in it. This is so achieved, not in merely the naturalistic depiction that each outer detail creates, but rather the shapes and painting are deliberately limited to essentials; something special from the character and gesture of an animal or a human figure. The child is not getting something finished in the hand, not a detailed snapshot of a trotting horse with defined eyelashes and facial expression - rather, an Ostheimer wooden figure leaves the child completely immersed in the exciting world of "horse" and gives their imagination much space for play, again and again new scenes and situations to make: as the horse is galloping, standing, neighing, nestling their head against me or it lies down to rest.
